Quinn works at the Raven’s Nest Bookstore with her married
cousin, Stephanie. Clara’s beau, Rick Sanders, runs
the hardware store across the street. He asks her to post
a poster in her bookshop for the upcoming rodeo, one where
Rick’s friend, Wes Carlton, is an expert calf roper.
As Clara unrolls the rodeo poster, she has a vision of a clown
being run down by a truck. Clara is having a vision, part
of the “Quinn Sense” she inherited from her father
that includes reading people's thoughts.
When Rick takes Clara to the rodeo to meet his friend Wes
and see the show, she meets Marty Pearce, a clown who entertains
the crowd between events. Realizing he’s the clown in
her visions, she wants to warn him, but has no opportunity.
Later, a female body is found behind the concert stage strangled
with a rope belonging to Wes. Rick, aware of Clara’s
psychic abilities, asks her to help clear his friend of the
Extra Sensory Deception is a truly wonderful mystery
and among the best I've read dealing with the paranormal.
The characters were charming and excellently portrayed; the
solid plot held enough surprises to keep me guessing the identity
and motive of the murderer to the end. I loved the interaction
between Clara and her cousin Stephanie, who often accompanies
Clara on her investigations. While Stephanie doesn't have
Clara’s psychic abilities, she does have a way with
people and knows how to obtain the information Clara needs.
I laughed out loud many times when Clara heard her dog’s
thoughts and his snide comments were right on. I also enjoyed
the budding romance between Rick and Clara and hope to see
it gain momentum in future releases, because I'm definitely
hooked on this wonderful, enchanting series.
